Bismarck Public Works advises residents - don’t place plastic bags in your recycling cart at home, and no plastic bags in the dumpsters at the recycling drop sites. Un-bag your recyclables when you use the recycling drop site dumpsters. Bagged recyclables or loose plastic bags, can slow down the recycling process or even ruin the whole load. Since it is gardening season, please be aware that the plastic tubs used at garden shops are not recyclable. Please throw gardening containers in your garbage.
